Great Tour!
, Feb 2020
Great way to see Osaka. Kevin was great and the three of us had a great personal tour. Worth it to have the small group experience. Kevin is very knowledgeable and did a great job tailoring the tour to our needs.

One of the Best Private Tour Ever
, Nov 2019
Our tour guide ,Levy Liran , became our instant friend. Aside from being very good in english and giving the best background/history on the places we go to, he was very flexible with the schedule and the choices of where he brought us. When he felt we want to squeeze in shopping, he brought us to an outlet store.

Dear Mila, It was our pleasure to show you around Osaka on our private car tour. Levy has a knack for showing people things they will enjoy! Thank you for the review, and we hope to see you or your friends or family sometime in the future.
We love Levy!
